Beauvoir was the seaside retirement estate of Jefferson Davis, the one and only president of the Confederate States of America. Beauvoir was also the site of the Mississippi Confederate Soldiers Home from 1903 to 1957. The restored antebellum home dominates the fifty-one-acre complex that includes outbuildings, the Confederate Museum, a historic cemetery, the Tomb of the Unknown Confederate Soldier, a nature trail, and a gift shop. The Jefferson Davis Presidential Library contains a biographical exhibit on Jefferson Davis in addition to the research library's collection on nineteenth-century Southern history.
